That truck is bad-ass dude! WhenI get home from workI'll check out your cardomain (work computer won't let me for some reason)..

Since you seem to wheel in snow a lot maybe you could answer a question of mine. I wanna go wheeling soon cause we got like a foot of snow now, and a blizzard comming tomarrow, and I think snow would make it fun, but I was wondering: Most of the terrain we go on is heavy ruts, mud, and hill climbs. I can imagine that some spirited throttle would make the hills fine, but what about going down hill? Does the snow provide enough resistance that you can ease down a steep hill, or would it just be sliding down hoping to not roll? I have 36 inch IROKs, a rear posi, and an open front, do you think I can wheel ok on the lighter stuff inthe snow or is snow a lockers-only game?

if your on snow you'll be ok now if there is ice underneath whatever you do dont lock your brakes up then you have no control but yes snow does cause resistance sometimes more than you want it too. and sometimes a locker in front will mess you up more in snow than an open diff. and key is if you start sinking stop spinning, you might be inching forward but believe me your going to dig alot faster than move.

So as long as there is no ice under the snow going down hill isn't that bad? How do you prevent wheel lockupw hen going down, I usually just ride the brakes down hill. I guess 4Lo and 1st gear would help? And you;re saying if I start to get stuck just get off the throttle and grab a strap before I get dug in too deep?

the best way to to explain snow wheeling is act like your in the dunes? you lock the brakes up on a down hill chances are you are going to start sliding and eventually stop when you hit something say a tree. and if you get throttle happy your probably gonna end up digging.

Nice Nate....but next time....just for the fun of it, try about 3 psi and see if that is the ritz. I'm the on-call snow-plow operator in Chandler by the way. :D:
